Who Would My Investors Be?
A forex fund investor needs to be a sophisticated investor who understands the risks associated with the fund. Since the media has generally informed the public of the potential advantages (as well as the risks) of forex funds, and since forex funds cannot advertise, there are many investors who would be interested in forex funds if they had the opportunity. A trader may find that in addition to family and close friends, many colleagues and casual acquaintances may be potential investors.
If you are interested in getting investors for your fund, your selling efforts must be personally directed toward investors who are known to you. Advertising and any other non-personal communications are prohibited. For the forex trader who wants to trade for his family and friends, this obviously is no problem at all. The forex fund is an ideal vehicle to pool the resources of a small group of investors.
